“Disney with a Twist”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

It's Disney but not quite like any park we've been to in Florida or France. It's a mix of Hollywood Studios and something very different. Great rides and superb shows - go see Aladdin if just for the Genie's ad libs, although the elephant is another highlight. Hey, you'd pay more than the Park ticket to see a production of this calibre on Broadway or the West End of London. On that note then Colors is out of this World, it's worth the ticket price on it's own. A super park with some great differences but why, oh why, is Midway Mania not on a Fastpass ?

“Best of the Disney Parks”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We went to this park first on a Monday. It was extremely hot for October 34 degrees celsius.
The water rides were great on such a hot day. Didn't need to get a fast pass as we never waited more than 20 minutes for a ride and we went on them all.
The Parade was great, loved the Tower of Terror!
The layout of this park made it easy to move from land to land without having to backtrack. We found this was not the case at Disneyland where we found ourselves covering the same ground more than once.
Food was reasonable, however water was expensive at $3.50 per bottle. Everyone who works there are happy and extremely helpful, they must all love their jobs.
We stayed at the Doubletree (would highly recommend) and walked to and from the park.
We enjoyed this more than Disneyland (on a Wednesday) which seemed aimed at little kids under 10. We fast passed as much as we could at this park as it was a lot busier and the wait times were about 90 minutes per ride.
If you go to the California Adventure Park first I don't think you will be disappointed.
